From the first time riding with the Platte Ranch a couple years ago, to our most recent ride yesterday, it is guides and owner Amy that keeps us coming back. Our teenage kids love riding here. They are the Best, and we HIGHLY recommend them.

8000 acres and "free range" horses: what more could a rider of any ability want. The guides round up a variety of horses and prepare them for the trip. Your horse is selected on your riding ability (good, fair, poor.) Everyone ready? Everyone mounts with...More

Response from Julie B | Reviewed this property |
I think it varies by horse. I would call and ask. It is so worth the ride to be in the open plain.
Are they open in the winter? Is there someone I could email to get more information?
